We are very excited to share the news of being awarded a High Commendation at this years Planning Awards for The Autarkic House in the award for use of new technology in the planning category.

The ambition of this project supersedes what many try to achieve with the development of a single residential dwelling. Not only does this scheme comply to Para 79e standards, a significant feat in itself, its purpose is incredibly inspiring. It is a brilliant example for others to aspire to ‘Autarkic Living’ and demonstrates what is possible when the right type of technology is used.

This is what the judges had to say:

Really aspirational in design and hope to demonstrate how off-grid living could be more a mainstream reality.

Innovative and potentially groundbreaking if it can be delivered on a viable platform and scaled up to address our commitments to carbon reduction and tackling the climate emergency whilst meeting housing needs.

Despite the scale of this project, its findings and ambitions are the most ambitious of all the entries and thus it has the most potential to impact the community and global environmental crisis.

More information about the project is available in our case study here.
